're not trying to make an intellectual argument. they're trying to stir up a hornet's nest. sam bacile identifies himself as an israeli israeli-jew and then he says he's jewish who is familiar with the area. there is an excellent chance that his name is not sam bacile, and he's not jewish, let alone israeli. he says that he has family in egypt and is worried about their safety. i think he's full of it in every way. about the movie. he said it cost $5 million. and he raised it from 100 jewish donors. first of all if they paid $5 million boy did they not get their money's worth. that was only against the green screens. that cost about $50. second of all, who who is jewish and says i raised it from 100 jewish donors. and ten steve klein jumps in. who is steve klein. he describes himself as a militant christian activist. he said, quote nobody is anything but an active american citizen. he ishehe is apparently not an israeli citizen. they are from syria turkey, pakistan the vast majority are evangelical in. they're evangelical interest this country and they want to attack muslims so they make a movie

thought we knew who was behind that film. a california real estate developer named sam bacile. he'd even given an improve to the associated press. but as jeffrey goldberg reported in "the atlantic," the alleged filmmaker does not appear to actually exist, at least not under the name sam bacile. previous reports that he is an israeli national have been disputed by the israeli government. there are no records of film permits or financial statements the to account for the making of the movie, and the incendiary lines about the prophet muhammad appear to have been dubbed in after the movie was made. earlier this afternoon, members of the casting crew of the film stepped forward to release this statement. they said, "the entire cast and crew are extremely upset and they feel taken advantage of by the producer. we are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose. we are shocked by the drastic rewrites of the script and the lies that were told to all involved. we are deeply saddened by the tragedies that have occurred." further more, we do not know who instigat
